Q: I have a yard with these super thin weeds, or spindle "grass seed", for lack of better terms that grow about 8 to 10 inches high. I have a cheap reel mower that I thinking about replacing because when I mow, the mower leaves these long thing behind me. It just folds them under. Will this lawn mower get these weeds or is this just a pipe dream? Thanks a Million.
by Brad Martin from Indiana on August 02, 2011

A: Brad - None of the reel mowers that we carry are going to handle any type of weed or grass that is 8 to 10 inches in length. This type of vegetation is just too long for a reel mower. If you want to stick with a reel mower to maintain your yard, I would suggest a cordless electric string trimmer to keep the long, thin weeds under control.

Q: Hi Todd,
Would you please tell me where the mower was made?
Thanks.

by Rik Snyder from South Carolina on June 06, 2011

A: Rik - the NaturCut reel mowers are manufactured in China.

The NaturCut Ideal 40 will not only make your lawn look great, it will also save you time and money in maintenance and up-keep.

What makes the NaturCut Ideal 40 the best option when looking for a reel mower is the minimal contact cutting system. When it comes to most reel mowers, the blades make regular contact with the bed-knife of the mower making sharpening a regular task. This cost will add up and take a good amount of time to keep these blades sharp. The NaturCut Ideal 40 makes... more

Easy To Use And Lightweight, Not Perfect Manufacturing
Out of the box the paint (powder coat?) had some areas that were very thick and chipping, but not chipping down to bare metal, just chipping off chunks. No big deal. It also arrived out of adjustment, so step one was to set the blades. Other than that, it's a very solid tool that is effortless and easy to use. Lightweight and easy/small to hang up in the garage. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Oh, it does not cut tall grass well, it just kind of bends it over instead of cutting, use... more

Great For The Older Generation
I bought the lawnmower after deciding I didn't want to buy from one of the big box stores.
Assembly was easy,(I'm 85 and arthritic). My lawn is small and the 16" width works fine. Very easy to push and I would certainly recommend it to anyone who wants a quality mower.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Quiet, Light Weight, Exceeded Expectations, Fast, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again

So Far So Good
I am writing this approximately 2 weeks into the life of my new mower. I was a bit hesitant when purchasing it, wondering if it really did the job. I was not let down. It's been a couple of weeks and I have cut my grass more often simply because I like using my new mower. My 7 twins can even use it and beg me on a daily basis to cut the grass. I live in zone 9 and it works just fine with the grass I have. I am pleased I decided on this mower.
Pros: Light Weight, Easy To Use, Quiet, Easy To Store

Small Yards
I have a small yard just getting started. The thicker the lawn, the better this works. Thin areas with some weeds, the mower just knocks the grass over. I think the better the grass becomes the better the mower will work. The mower itself works as expected.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Easy To Store, Price
Cons: If Your Lawn Is Thin Has Weeds I Don't Think This Is For You

Brill Replacement
My 10 year old Brill cordless broke apart 3 weeks ago. The 2nd battery died last year ($100 last time I bought a new one). I have been using it as a push mower ever since. Needless to say Brill is no longer selling the cordless in the US. Since I have been using a non powered mower I decided to replace it with a regular reel mower. Based on your recommendation I bought the NaturCut 16". I have used it twice and like the wider cutting path and light weight.
Pros: Light Weight, Easy To Use, Quiet, Easy To Store

Amazing!!!
I don't mind admitting that I was quite nervous about buying a 'powerless' mower but after using this mower 3 times I could not be happier with my decision. Having said that I feel that I should explain the 2 star rating for features: there really aren't many (any?) features but it really doesn't need any. All that is necessary to use the mower is to adjust the height but once that is done I'm all set. If my lawn were much bigger than what it is I might have to take more of a rest during... more

Disappointed
The first time I used this mower one of the wheels fell off. It's been used twice and both times I've had to mow over each spot 3 times just to get most of the grass cut so it looked like it had been mowed! If it wasn't for our vacation, we would have returned it before the deadline. Now we're stuck with a reel mower that doesn't cut grass.
Cons: Low Quality, Difficult To Use

It's A Workout But It Works!
We have a large patio and a good bit of yard that is ground cover. We don't have a great amount of yard that needs mowing and this is perfect for that.

I Want My Money Back
I purchased this mower after reading the reviews and watching the video. My gas lawn mower broke and I wanted to try the reel mower in an effort to be kind to the eco system.

This is by far the worse purchase that I have ever made.
Cons: Low Quality, Difficult To Use, Expensive, This Mower Will Not Cut

Didn't Perform As Promised
The mower couldn't handle moderately high or thick grass. The video of the fellow happily plowing through tall grass is bogus. Out of the box and with sharp blades, this mower just would not cut! It might be fine for thin grass that is not too tall, on a small lot. But don't expect it to replace a power mower. More's the pity - I really had high hopes for this one. Oh, dear, $200+ wasted.
Pros: Light Weight, Easy To Store
Cons: Difficult To Use, Unreliable, Expensive
